Early Entries end This Week

This Friday is the last day to enter Pause Awards with Early Entry fees. We suggest you take up on this offer to save yourself 40% OFF late entries. Here are some frequently asked questions that we got in the last month from you.

Can I enter more than one category?

Yes you can as many as you like, but make sure that you contextualise each entry for the category you are entering.

Can I enter the same project in more than one category?

Sure you can, as long as the project fits the given category you can enter as many as you like.

What is the deadline for the entry?

The final deadline is 2nd October 2021. You can read more on the important dates and fees page.

When will the winners get announced?

The finalists will be announced on 10 November and winners at the Awards Night on 24 November.

How many questions/word total response required?

Everyone needs to answer five questions with a 250 words limit or 1200 characters.

What’s the announcement format? A dinner/event/online, etc.

We are planning an exceptional Awards Night in-person and will move the dates if need be to accommodate, failing that we’ll deliver the online awards show as the last option.

Can the same project from last year?

You can enter two years in a row but in a different category or if the project has extended to achieve new results that are significantly different from last time you’ve entered, you can also enter into the same category.

Can I edit my submission after entering?

You can’t edit once you submit, so make sure you are happy before hitting enter.

Do I need to pay to enter the awards?

Yes, there is a flat fee for all entries.

I’m an early startup, under two years, what’s best for me?

You can submit it under the Underground Award category.

Can I just enter the idea for my startup or product that I haven’t started yet?

Yes, weirdly enough we have the Inception Award for this.

Is there a document that I can share around with the team about how to enter?

Yes, we have an Awards Entry Kit and can be downloaded from here.

I have specific questions for the categories that are not answered here?
